Blessed are the peacemakers …

The General Assembly’s adoption of Peacemaking: The Believers’ Calling, which called for an emphasis on peacemaking, paved the way for this offering, which seeks to promote the Peace of Christ across the PC(USA). Individual congregations are encouraged to utilize a large portion of this offering to sustain their local peacemaking ministries.

When is the Peacemaking Offering?

The Peacemaking Offering is traditionally received  on World Communion Sunday.  However, you can help sustain the important PC(USA) ministries and programs that are supported by the Peacemaking Offering by making an online gift during the Season of Peace or at any time throughout the year.


 

A Season of Peace

A Season of Peace is a 4-week pilgrimage designed to deepen the pursuit of peace in congregations, small groups, families, and for individuals. Through daily peace reflections, family activities, Bible studies, youth activities, an exciting intergenerational Peace Fair, and other on-line resources, A Season of Peace will engage your imagination and offer opportunities for you to live more fully into your calling as a peacemaker. It is for the curious and the jaded; the beginner and the experienced peace seeker. Spend a new season with Jesus, the peacemaker, and see if this might become your way of being authentically Christian in the world.

  • UPDATE from General Assembly: In a vote late Friday night, the 220th General Assembly voted "to maintain existing programs, percentages, and designees in the One Great hour of Sharing, the Christmas Joy Offering, and the Pentecost offering and the Peacemaking Offering. The 220th General Assembly (2012) recommends that the current distribution patterns be maintained for the next funding cycle and that the existing special offerings task force be asked to report to the 221st General Assembly (2014) on the effect of new fundraising techniques, to work collaboratively with funding recipients, update progress on the $20 million by 2020 goal, and recommend additional strategies." by Jordan Whitt PC(USA) Staff on 07/09/2012 at 5:16 p.m.

  • I, too, am concerned about the "loss" of a peacemaking emphasis with the shift to OGHS. I know we are giving enough anywhere, but this special offering in our congregation has allowed us to host international peacemakers, send members to Ghost Ranch. And, yes, I hate too many special offerings. I wish we just gave as we were blessed--and we Presbyterians are! Thanks for a place to rant. by Anne M. Eaton on 06/16/2012 at 12:00 p.m.

  • I believe it is ill advised to essentially place the Peacemaking Offering under the World Mission Offering. Peacemaking Offering has always been a very much needed emphasis on the importance of MAKING PEACE/WORKING FOR PEACE. In a world desperately needing to learn about the importance of practicing Peacemaking, please keep it's special emphasis. World Mission, of course could include Peacemaking, but it often does not. by Joyce Carlson on 06/14/2012 at 12:33 a.m.

  • Peter, the chair and co-chair of the Special Offerings Advisory Task Force are the Rev. Karl Travis and the Rev. Sarah Butter (respectively). Their email addresses are ktravis@fpcfw.org and revbutter@fpc-wilmette.org. They are both more than happy to speak with your mission chair. by Margaret Boone on 06/04/2012 at 10:17 a.m.

  • My Mission Chair is very upset with the Offering proposals. How do we secure e-mails for these two committee leaders? by peter mann on 06/03/2012 at 4:55 p.m.
